or others in this work which is deeply disturbing, we need china's help, we need china's cooperation. and perhaps the only way that we can get china to cooperate that china understands that the north korean threat escalates a military presence in the region and that's something that china desperately doesn't want to see. but we have to make it clear that as north korea continues to capos a risk to us and a greater risk to us with missiles that could possiblily hit our shores. and that puts significant pressure on china in terms of its fuel supplies to north korea and other leverage that they can act in a way they really need to and they can act responsibly. >> congressman adam shift, always great to have you on the program. >>> the states must decide if they can create their own insurance marketplaces as part of the federal health care reform law. at least 20 states have already said they have opting out. it is a way for consumers to put private health insurance plans online.

, the rights of disabled americans including veterans who may travel the country such as china or russia or mali or any other country that may choose to adopt this treaty. if the senate desires to protect rights of disabled americans who travel abroad, the senate would do better to encourage other nations to model their own reforms, their own internal legal structures after the americans with disabilities act, which 20 years after its passage still send a message that disabled americans will always have fair access to housing, employment and education in this nation. i've mentioned a few things to treaty does not do. i like to few things to treaty does do that cause me some concern. article xxxiv establishes a committee with the rights of persons with disabilities. this committee will establish its own rules of procedure and parties to the treaty are required to submit reports every four years. in general, u.n. human rights treaty committees have made demands the state parties that fall well outside of the legal, social, economic and cultural traditions and norms of state parties. someti
's claim that -- mitt's claim that jeep was moving its production to china causing a flood of negative press directed at mitt. of course it did. only the american media could see this little flubb as worse than the bungled aftermath following the death of four americans in benghazi. forget the other liberal lies that paul ryan pushes grannies off the cliff, remember that? or mitt murdered a guy's wife. that was fun. media is a sad middle age man at strip club overcome by obama lust diminished by stupidity. the emperor has no close clothes. all they can do is keep whistling. why every news outlet ran with the fake award. the blog claims the public expressed collective outrage and they must mean male bloggers with ponytails. saying this is the real lie but it's worse than a lie. abetting the obama coverup, the media is an accessory after the fact. we still don't know where this video idea came from, i will never stop. don't you think that is worse than a crack about jeeps shipped to china? the politifact lie of year award should go to politifact. congrats. covering up "o"'s mistake is yo

economically, china being the biggest case of this, turning out millions of engineers, scientists, jumping up in productive and technology and they made some interesting calculations of course, the numbers are, you know, a little bit subject to question, but they're trying to add up the factors that create global power, whether it's the size of the economy, or the amount of research and development countries are doing, or the level of education of the population or the military. so basically we see that the u.s. that was so dominant 40 years ago, we know that our dominance has been going down relative to other countries is basically going to become one of a few superpowers, but not only the superpower. >> so other countries are catching up. how does that have to do with what we all talk about as the decline we see happening here and how real is it? >> i think what this report rightly stresses is that there are a number of things going on. one is that others are catching up. and the other is that we have got many problems that we're not attending to. >> what is for real? >> one thing that's fo

ask you about some other stuff. japan rising. europe stocks doing very well. china stocks having a bit of a comeback year. in other words, as a global guide, there are options to playing this fiscal cliff game here in new york. >> absolutely. you don't have to just trade the s&p 500. i mean, look at tonight, you're seeing australia up a third of a point. the japanese yen is doing very well. look at hong kong. if you want to take what the federal reserve did and apply it internationally, look at hong kong. their monetary policy is pegged to what the federal reserve does. but they have an inflation issue and their economy is tied to china. so if you buy something like ewh, the hong kong etf, all those stocks are priced in hong kong dollars. if the hong kong dollar is repegged, the ewh will go up as much as the repegging. >> what does that mean for the u.s. market? where are you on the u.s. market right now? >> you know, i think right now, probably to the end of year, if we can get some kind of movement on this fiscal cliff, you have a real potential for a pop, 3%, 4%, 5%. unfortunately,

to bangladesh. they used to produce a lot in china. they've decide wages are too high in china. they moved toward bangladesh which has the world's lowest minimum wage for a country that does serious manufacturing about $37 a month. and walmart sears other countries look to bangladesh because they want to produce apparel at the very lowest cost and they're worried if they invest a lot more in, say in wages or fire safety, that might force them to pay $5 a shirt rather than $4 a shirt and they worry that will make them competitive. my sense is having to talk to experts is western companies import about $18 billion worth of apparel each year from bangladesh and it might cost a billion or $2 billion to get several thousand apparel factories in shape to prevent fires, to provide fire escapes to provide good, safe stairways for people to come down. and i think the thinking is that might raise the price of apparel by 2%, 3%, which wouldn't kill us if we have to pay 50 cents more for a $20 shirt. >> jennifer: that's the iss

. as far as china is concerned, we don't tariff, we don't put that high of a tariff on their imports but yet i don't know the exact numbers but i believe it's a lot higher that they tax our imports in their country. and the whole thing with jobs. he created the apple scommuret in california in his garage but yet when he got successful he moves all his company over to china, giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he wouldn't even have a garage therefore he wouldn't be able to create the apple computer. so i just think we just don't do enough for the people of this country. and the people who are in position to create jobs and do this do not reinvest in the country. therefore i don't think they should get tax breaks. if you want to give these corporate giants tax breaks then give it to those who want to invest in the country, who want to create jobs here, not overcease, and they think try to think of ways to get their money over there into here lower than say the american businessman paying 35%. guest: i mean, i understand your frustration. i think part of it is th

think broadly of markets like china and brazil. these are markets that started to increase monetary easing. that have started to restructure their economies and certainly we think china has avoided very nicely a hard landing and will be back for growth track next year. >> talk to me about getting yield. that what everybody want right now. how are you doing it? high yield or investment grade securities or where? >> we are underweighted and they don't provide much of a yield these days. they are on high yield and we've had a barn burner of the year with high yield. we still think you can get high digit returns in 2013. and we are looking at global infrastructure in real estate as providing a nice sustainable yield for investors. >> the big debate down here for the past couple of days after the fed made its announcement is whether or not that will prick the bond bubble. where whether we are in a bond bubble or whether there was a bond bubble. where do you stand on that? >> it's interesting. when i think after bubble, i think of something that can burst and drag values down to zero. one

military in china. this was signed off on by the defense secretary, leon panetta who used to be a cia chief and by general david petraeus who stepped down as cia chief after an extramarital affair was exposed last month, as for funding, the pentagon gave the dcs about 100 million dollars just to get the program started, but their overall budget is not expected to grow. in fact, the overall budget, the dia overall budget might decrease since just about every part of the government is looking to cut back right now and the money from the dcs and the personnel are just essentially going to be converted from the existing defense intelligence agency over to the defense clandestine service. >> that's what we need. an expansion of the government. >> thank you so much, peter. >> thanks, peter. >> all right, let's get your headlines now, and show you what's happening around the world. thousands of egyptians took to the streets, showing support for their president. all right, this is the scene in cairo as egyptians rally behind president morsi. on december 15th there will be a vote on a new constituti
the treaty including china and russia. the treaty is modelled after existing u.s. law. former senator bob dole is 89 years old. he just got out of the hospital yesterday. and today he came to the senate floor in a wheelchair to support the treaty. eight republicans and two independents voted for the treaty including john mccain. but it wasn't enough. the treaty failed 61-38. >> it was solid then. he means it. and i think the organizing around it is so important. the labor movement, consumer groups, women's groups. >> i'm joined by a columnist for the nation magazine and howard fineman, msnbc political analyst. great to have you with us. howard, you first. when bob dole comes to the senate and he can't move people, where is the common sense? >> the senate is lost. that's the way i would put it. bob dole, one of the most revered figures. he's almost literally on his death bed a week or two ago. who summoned the courage to come to the senate to be the conscious on something he championed in 1990. this was senator bob dole, a republican. president george h. bush, republican. dick thorneberg,
